My guess is there is a BFA (blank firing adapter) in the end of the barrel and he is shooting a blank. Which explains the smoke.

Well at least they knew better than to stag this photo with him wearing a pair of men’s jeans instead of the mom jeans he normally wears...

I have not shot skeet for several years but the picture looks staged...several things look wrong...

Why didn’t they get a Duck Dynasty guy out there to at least make this appear to be believable?

Oh wait, they’re white Christians who actually know how to shoot....

Nevermind.

Because he has no idea how to shoot

True but he is a “sharpshooter” when it comes to blaming others. He can sense his prey from a great distance, train his sights on the “target”, and rapidly fire off volleys of verbal attacks against his opponents until they are polically wounded. :)

Well they forgot to put in the smoke that would be coming from the ports on the left side. It’s ported on both sides.

Good point but since when has this administration ever been concerned about following the rule of law or the Constitution for that matter?

Obviously fake picture. Everyone knows that when you gut shoot a unicorn you'll have a Skittles spill. That's why you should aim for the chest.

When the heck does anyone shoot that close to a road?? Most ranges have gravel roads at best.

Interesting observation. Many areas prohibit the discharge of firearms within 100 yards or so from any type of “structure”.

Well from the position of the recoil pad on his shoulder I suspect that was the first and last time he ever shot a shotgun. I suspect this was in retaliation to comments being made. I also notice no station or house plus he’s not even looking down the rib

I was just about to post that. No more than half the butt pad is in contact with his shoulder and the line from the top of the barrell meets the top frame of his sunglasses.

So let’s see. Obama teed off at the AFB course at 9:00 AM that day, played for 6 hours, hopped on the plane, flew to Camp David, arriving well after 3 PM, (not sure how long the flight is), went skeet shooting and then joined a small group of friends & aides to celebrate his birthday.

Right.
***********************************************************
“WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama celebrated his 51st birthday Saturday with a round of golf and a quiet weekend at Camp David, taking a break from campaigning three months before Election Day.

Obama, wearing a white golf shirt, khaki pants and sunglasses, boarded Marine One at Andrews Air Force Base after about six hours on the golf course before heading to Camp David. He was joined by a small group of friends and aides that included White House chef Sam Kass, a frequent golf partner.”

Cork and string coming out of the barrel.

I think the extra puff of smoke is from a previous shot. The chose this pic to get people to come up with theories on the smoke so they can use it later for ridiculing right wing gun owners.

Doesn’t everybody shoot skeet with only one choke tube screwed in? Since it’s threaded for choke tubes the one thing you never do is shoot it without a choke tube, it screws up and damages the threads. This is such a joke!

He looks about as natural shooting a shotgun gun as he did driving a Voltmobile 50 feet or throwing a baseball.

I want to see one with the gun held sideways. I’d also like the one with smoke coming out of his arse. How about one with smoke coming out his ears?

Shooting a pigeon made out of clay?

Shooting from a bicycle with that gay helmet?

As I said on another thread on this subject, “Let the games begin.”

How things have changed. Even the well off had things simpler then. A small crushed gravel path and stands instead of the paving we now have so commonly.

When you go to the Camp David link you’ll notice something else in the pic’s and vids. About the only time you’ll see that much smoke from a shotgun is when it’s cold.

If it’s an official WH photo we paid for it and therefore own it. How do they have the authority to tell us what we can and can’t do with it?

According to the link at Flickr herethe photo comes from "The White House's Photostream". Their admonition about how these photos can be treated (under Profile) says:

"These official White House photographs are being made available for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photographs. The photographs may not be used in materials, advertisements, products, or promotions that in any way suggest approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House."

There is nothing about not manipulating them. Now, when I go to the official White House website and view their photo gallery, I can't find what their "rules" say.

Every one I've ever been to have had the downrange area well away from a paved road. I think this is as fake as his entire admin.

As several have observed, that photo does, indeed look "hokey".

Ported O/U shotguns are available; Citori, for one offers factory porting, and shops like MagNaPort perform aftermarket porting.

But, several things about the porting in that photo don't lookl exactly right:

Shouldn't we see multiple jets -- along the barrel -- on both sides?

~~~~~~~~~~

The muzzle blast smoke looks odd, too:

Surely the pResident (of the White Hut) wouldn't post a Photoshopped fake photo - and then tell others not to "alter" it -- further...

The picture looks like it was taken around noon. The shadow on his left hand indicates the sun was overhead. If golfing was around 6 hours his golf start time would be about 6am and this photo around 1pm.

I wonder what the reported timelines were.
